Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

There was an accident as Miss Payne (aka Miss Moto) was hooping the hoop on Tuesday night. News of this has increased the audiences. She was only slightly injured. The feat of hooping the hoop 'calls for much nerve and steadiness'. Mr. Owen 'will no doubt breathe a sigh of relief when the car has made its final revolution tomorrow'.
